I relocated here after a 30 year absence, as this is where I began my career when I was just a youngster, and so with the idea I would like to retire out here I forged ahead with my long awaited plans.
Being from the Midwest, and having lived in many places in the southwest and then ending up back in the Midwest, I knew I'd return one day. Retire? Yeah...right. That could make me crazy as there is only so much golf and fishing a person can do.
So what's a guy to do? Let's start a business!! The second half of my life in a new and improved location with an idea of a new and improved career....
Unlike where I'm from, of which during the winter you just about hibernate for 6 months, I come here where people are always moving about doing something. I am so close to my utopia since my 3 greatest loves of nature are mountains, palm trees and the ocean. Two out of three isn't too bad. Once California falls off in the ocean I'll have beach front view!
My mind being as curious as it is creates a long list of interests in life. For sports I love playing golf, fishing and boating, watching baseball and football, and occasionally tennis. Shows? I am more into something that is more educational than entertaining. That's what movies are for, I think. I am fascinated by how the universe was created and how it works.
I enjoy science museums for the enjoyment of my curious mind. Sometimes you'll learn something as well. Culturally I enjoy fine dining, cooking...especially outdoors and art fairs and festivals. I guess that also touches on my creative needs. I am an art lover as well as music. I am a guitar player of many years ... and recently asked to join a group of talented musicians to build a project that we can entertain people with, in the end.
I'm also trained in graphics and printing, marketing and advertising and this is what possessed me to start a new business here. Phoenix is a boom again and new businesses are popping up all over. That's my forte' since my primary business is direct mail advertising along with digital marketing of small business.
Worth noting, I am not a smoker, light drinker, DDF and a Veteran.
Other interests include card games, movies, road trips, historical landscapes, antiques, classic cars, NHRA, concerts, live bands, dancing, traveling and romantic getaways.
If I ever find that special someone she will likely learn of my desire to do things for her that brings the biggest smiles to her face.... whatever that might be. I guess they call them pleasant surprises. I don't get to know what that will take until I meet her.
What I am seeking is generally the same as most people I suppose. Enjoying and discovering life with her at my side, being there for her as she would for me. I want to experience that chemistry buzz again like I did when I was younger... as we grow older it seems so much harder to find. But we all press-on. None of us is perfect, thank god, but to find someone that is ambitious and full of life would be a great find. She has an open mind...well just enough so her brains won't fall out...which brings me to the next desire and that would be her smarts. I enjoy a well informed lady.
I realize this is a lot to ask for, but keep in mind they are not requirements and as in life, everything is negotiable!
If I have sparked an interest, I would encourage you to contact me. I will only bite as hard as you wish...............LOL. Kidding, of course. Oh, one last thing. She needs to have a sense of humor and the ability to laugh at her own self in the things she might do or say.
